4 Essential Tips for an Indoor Herb Garden

There’s nothing quite like cooking with fresh herbs, and you can’t get fresher than snipping them off the bush seconds before adding them to your dish! Luckily, growing herbs right in your kitchen is relatively easy.

Here are some top tips to get you started and on the right track.

Choose the Right Herbs
Your favourite herb is a good starting point, as you will probably use it the most. If you are looking for low-maintenance options, though, chives, peppermint and parsley are all ideal. Some of the harder herbs to keep going are basil and thyme, so they aren’t the best options for beginners.

Pick a Sunny Spot
As a general rule, you should be growing your herbs somewhere which gets a minimum of 6 hours sunlight per day. It is also a good idea to turn your plants regularly so that they receive the sun’s light evenly.

Ensure Your Plants Drain Properly
If your plants don’t have good drainage, their roots will sit in water—which will lead to them rotting and the plant dying. Additionally, without the right drainage, water could leak onto your countertop (or wherever your plants are) and damage that surface.

Make sure you put your herbs in pots which allow for drainage, and that you place them on a saucer to collect water draining out.

Keep Each Plant Separate
Different herbs will enjoy different soil and levels of watering. In order to give each plant the best care, you should plant them in separate pots.
